Our last minute booking for a table for 4 resulted in a most pleasant evening. The Swan does not usually open on New Year's Eve so this was something of a trial by the management. The restaurant was busy but not heaving, nice ambiance.
A very nice/sensible touch was that you could order the New Year set meal or from the a la carte menu. Reasonably priced and with choices we could all enjoy we chose the set.
We were a little disconcerted by the "onion soup" which came in a tiny teacup and although delicious was tepid. However,the starters, main courses and puds that followed were all excellent. The Swan was only open for its usual hours so no "seeing in the New Year" which was fine for us as we are just a short, though very dark, walk away.
